Tourists in Abilene

I have been to Abilene many times to visit with Michael's family, but being the history nerd I am, I wanted to be a tourist in Abilene and check out some of the local museums. By far my favorite museum was Frontier Texas! It was highly interactive and informative for all ages 4-104. The kids had a great time exploring, riding and moving all sorts of artifacts.

Explored a Tee-Pee encampment.

Learning about wagons and trail rides.

Its a free site, that has a plethora of illustrated pages and artwork from many familiar stories and award winning artist on display. The reading room had a giant table made out of books. It made for a short story time fun.

Madelyn and Mackenzie dressed up and gave us an encore performance in the Children's theatre.
